How Long Does Nephrotic Syndrome Take to Progress into Renal Failure

Details: Good morning! My daughter has the problem of Nephrotic Syndrome and she is 6 years old. How long will Nephrotic Syndrome take to develop into renal failure?

Expert Answer

Nephrotic Syndrome often occurs in children, and patients’ prognosis changes from person to person. Therefore, it is hard to say how long this disease will take to aggravate into kidney failure.

If Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by minimal change disease (MCD), patients may even get complete remission spontaneously. That is to say, it is possible for NS patients never to have kidney failure.

However, if Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by other conditions, patients’ prognosis may be not so good. In this condition, patients should take prompt treatments to manage their kidney problem and improve their kidney function timely. Steroids and immunosuppressants are used commonly to inhibit the activity of immune complexes and inflammatory reactions within kidneys.

Compared with these medications, kidney experts here would like to recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy. Both of these two therapies can help remove immune complexes and repair impaired kidney cells, so they can treat Nephrotic Syndrome from the root and alleviate patients’ proteinuria and swelling. What’s more, these therapies won’t cause any side effects, so patients can use them safely.
